Guideline for Implementing Short Interval Control in Underground Mining Operations

Short interval control (SIC) is a structured system in which data from mining processes are periodically reviewed and action is taken in response to them. This guideline describes a process to increase the speed and likelihood of success during SIC implementation while avoiding common pitfalls. Specifically, the guideline presents a conceptual model of what SIC could look like that includes an operational framework, detailed workflows, and an outline of data enablement at various levels of maturity.
